He installed 2 stents and a follow up at his clinic at chong hua hospital ,I returned back to Australia in the November and had the work checked out,was told that he did an excellent job by a well know heart surgeon at home. Hope this helps I wish you the very best cheers Cebu cardiovascular centre osmenaevard,cebu city boulevard

    Lost In Translation

    I gave up also, the nearest I can figure out is that here in Cebu they speak visayan some tagalog throw in the Spanish and if they don't know the exact word they throw in English or just say kuhan,like I am supposed to know what that means. the best of luck to anyone who tries to work out what they are saying.

    My Current Situation In The Phils.

    I have no words that would comfort the both of you,other than to say we all feel your pain ,this forum is more than just a vessel for information it is in my opinion a family of like minded members who do there best to help fellow members and offer friendship that many of us may not have otherwise. god bless you both.
  7. Here in Cebu while walking around I have yet to see a trash can,people just throw there garbage, soda cans, plastic bags, discarded food wherever they want. Me and my wife carry our trash home with us and place it in our own bin .
  8. Government red tape or should I say paperwork.
  9. Trying to deal with the governments different departments and all the requirements [mountains of paperwork] and no logic to most of it. It appears that one dept does not know the other depts requirements are ,so you end up running around like a chook with no head,going from one to the other and back again to where you started . Frustrating to say the least.

    Old Guy At The Gym

    I'm with you old 55 standing in line.
  13. If someone said to me 10yrs ago I would be living in the Philippines ,I would have said you are out of your mind. I first came here in the late 60s on r+r,since that time I have been here 4-5 times and gradually coming to really like the people and the country .My wife was born in Cebu,but lived most of her life in AUZ . After witnessing the decline of my home country and the high cost of living and realising that my pension at home would not be sufficient to live a decent lifestyle ,we decided to move to Cebu ,its a decision I have not regretted .

    Do You Think In Pesos?

    I think in php but always do rough calculation back to $au as Dave posted you need to keep an eye on your home countries currency otherwise you can blow your budget.
  15. I have lived in many countries all around the world,but without a doubt the Philippines has to be the noisiest country ever. :1 (103):
